Am I cheating on my employer by coming to Forum cinfo?
Forum cinfo is fast approaching. As a professional in international cooperation, I have been wondering if participating in this career event means betraying my employer. But I would be wrong to think so.
Attending Forum cinfo doesn’t necessarily mean I am dissatisfied with my current job. Nor does it mean that I don’t like the organisation I work with, or that I am planning to leave as soon as possible. In fact, the opposite is true.
By participating in Forum cinfo, I show that I care about my career path, about my employer...
By participating in Forum cinfo, I show that I care about my career path, about my employer, and more generally about the sector in which I am engaged.
What are the current issues in international cooperation? What are the latest trends and developments in the sector? To what extent is my organisation affected by these changes? How is it reacting and adapting? And how can I, at my level, help my organisation to develop or change for the better?
Forum cinfo is a space where we can reflect and exchange about these and other questions, and maybe find some answers. It’s also a space where I can expand my network and strengthen existing ties. Last but not least, my participation in the event demonstrates that my employer is open and attaches great importance to the development of its staff.
Employees who keep track of their career options are more dynamic and likely to develop than others. They are also happier.
Staying abreast of future trends in our sector and networking with likeminded people is not only for job seekers – it should be regular business for every dedicated professional.
